    There is no set limit as depends entirely onl your specific circumstances, working hours, income, number of child, childcare costs, disabilities.

    There are various online calculators you can use. Entitledto is my preference. Or post your details on here.

    You wouldn't be able to get an accurate calculation then. Can you not look up some nurserys/childminders to get a rough idea of costs?
